Kevin Doyle to miss Slovakia game

Ireland striker Kevin Doyle has been ruled out of Tuesday's European Championship qualifier against Slovakia due of a knee injury.

The Football Association of Ireland said this morning that the Wolves player had returned to his club for treatment.

Manager Giovanni Trapattoni has decided not to call up a replacement with the remaining 21 players fit to travel.

Ireland need to secure three points against Slovakia after losing 3-2 at home to Russia in Friday's Group B match. Either Shane Long or Andy Keogh are likely to replace the injured Doyle in Ireland's starting eleven.
